West Seattle High School musicians, marchers in Victoria Day celebrations

WSHS band in Victoria Days parade

Thanks to Laura Martin for the photos and video from the West Seattle High School Band, Orchestra, and Flag Squad trip to Victoria, B.C., for Victoria Day celebrations. The Band and Flag Squad marched today in the 118th Victoria Day Parade, where she says the mid-parade dance routine delighted the crowd:

And on Saturday and Sunday, Laura (a parent chaperone) reports, they performed “in various venues in downtown Victoria (including) in front of the Parliament Building as part of the ‘Parade of Bands” event, showcasing high school bands from Washington and British Columbia.” Here’s a collage:

Victoria Day is a Canadian holiday in honor of Queen Victoria, always on the last Monday before May 25th; she was born on May 24, 1819.

P.S. You can also see a short video clip from today’s parade here.

    Glad to see the kids got to perform in Victoria, great representation for West Seattle. School musicians used to take the Princess Marguerite in the early 70’s for Victoria Day.

Sorry, comment time is over.
